A laboratory based analysis of the primary stability of a new conservative hip prosthesis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

The primary stability of a new conservative hip prosthesis was analyzed. The design makes use of a higher femoral cut, which conserves bone stock, increasing options for future revision surgery. A jig was designed to carry linear variable differential transducers (LVDT), to accurately measure micromotion and migration at the bone-prosthesis interface in axial and varus/valgus directions. The results suggest that this stem design will be stable in the short term following insertion, until a long-term biological fixation is developed between the prosthesis and the bone.
